Million Hearts®

Million Hearts launched in 2012 with a goal to prevent by one million heart attacks and strokes by 2017. The National Forum is a proud supporter of the Million Hearts initiative and has been working closely with our members to advance its ambitious goal.

World Heart Day is the world’s largest intervention against cardiovascular disease. However, it is only one day, and it takes more than a day to change behavior. That’s why the National Forum is leveraging World Heart Day to create challenges that will impact heart health throughout the entire month of September.

World Heart Health Day

Cardiovascular disease (heart disease and stroke) is the number one cause of death in the U.S. That’s why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) came together to create and lead the Million Hearts® initiative. This initiative, which was launched in 2012, aims to prevent by one million heart attacks and strokes by 2017. Find out how the National Forum is supporting this CDC- and CMS-lead effort.

Approximately 1 in 3 American adults has a cholesterol level that is too high for them. Worse, only about half of them have it under control. This is a problem as cholesterol and plaque buildup, also known as atherosclerosis, is the most common cause of heart attacks and strokes. Unfortunately, this fact is not well known in the U.S. We’re working to change that with a cholesterol initiative that raises public awareness about cholesterol and the importance of cholesterol management.
